Intro to Google Glass

You may have noticed that the "winds of change" from last month have blown through and left behind a slightly different meetup!  We've rebranded as "Bleeding Edge Web" (@EdgeATX) and expanded our focus beyond just Sencha technologies (although we'll still cover those also).  We also have a new Tumblr where we'll post useful and interesting stuff going forward.

News and Trends

We'll discuss the most interesting headlines from the last month in the world of JavaScript, HTML5, browsers and other front end web technology. We'll also keep a finger on the pulse of front end development, highlighting current trends in libraries and tools.  A few highlights:

  • Browser news (FF 22, IE 11, Chrome Frame)
  • W3C news (new web cryptography API, CSS masking working draft)
  • Library updates (PhoneGap 3.0)
  • Austin news (new meetups, upcoming events)
  • And more...

Deep Dive

We are very excited to host Kyle Samani, CEO of Pristine and organizer of the new Google Glass meetup here in Austin. He'll be giving a hands-on(!) demo of Glass, the new wearable computing platform from Google.  Kyle's company is focused on commercializing Glass development in the medical field, and he'll be talking about the Glass platform, why you might choose to develop with it and some technical examples of how to work with it.  Talk about a great way to kick off our "bleeding edge" format -- this talk is not to be missed!

Community

We'll end the meetup with group announcements (are you hiring? are you looking?) along with a discussion of ideas for making the meetup more interactive. Corey and I have some ideas, and we definitely want to hear your thoughts as well.

After the meetup, we'll wander a block over to Iron Cactus for discussion and margaritas, so please stay after if you can.  We had a great time there last month!

    Learned a lot. Helped me really understand what it was about, what it was good for, and whay it shouldn't be used in many current use cases.

    Hi all. Due to the overwhelming demand between our two groups, combined with limited space, we've had to cut off new RSVP's (you can still get on the waiting list if you missed out). If you miss this meeting, you can always sign up for the Glass meetup group and attend their next meeting.

    If you are RSVP'd and cannot make it, PLEASE change your status and open up your spot to someone else. Thanks!

    Have been designing some applications myself. Going to bring my pair if there is a need for more efficient demos.

    Please only RSVP on this site OR the Google Glass page. If you RSVP on both, you end up being double-counted. Thanks, and looking forward to seeing all of you!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
